NOTE: The course runs over two Wednesday afternoons. Each afternoon covers different content so attendees are encouraged to attend both sessions. You cannot register for just one session (ie. the registration fee covers whether you attend one session or both sessions).
The sessions will be delivered live so you need to "attend" during the specified times.
If you would like to attend but live outside of Australia, please contact Asher Kirk prior to registering (email below) as we are investigating recording the sessions and providing a time limited link for access at a more appropriate time of day. Please note this option will ONLY be available for overseas participants (excluding NZ), as we want to encourage as much participation and interaction as possible.
A more detailed course program will be posted on the website closer to the date.
A link to the course will be sent to you one week before the first session.
Registration Fee: $100 (inclusive of GST)
*Please note: registration closes Wednesday 23rd November 2022*
